Educating Our Parents: Understanding the South Park Township District Curriculum
Middle School students get a broad range of classes along with courses in Applied Engineering and Technology. These students are put on Exploratory Teams where they get to learn about art, theater, cooking, technology, music and more. Here students encounter other aspects of learning that would be missed if they only studied math, English and science. By integrating the curriculum, students also are able to better see the connections between areas of learning, which is a major emphasis in the curricular goals.
High School students have many classes and electives available to them. Among these are their business courses which students may take if they wish to follow this career path. There are also foreign language classes in German, French and Spanish as options. The high school also offers alternative education options for students who might find better success in a non-traditional setting that maintains high academic standards and provides courses that interest students.

Chalk Talk: Gifted & Talented Programs
There is much confusion about gifted education: what is it and what isn’t it? According to the Pennsylvania Department of Education, there are several criteria that must be met for a student to fall under the “gifted” category. While an IQ test is often used in helping to determine gifted students (an IQ of 130 or more automatically puts you in that category), there are other factors considered which can over-ride a lower IQ score. Examples of these include: A) a student being at least a year above their grade level in at least one subject. B) Students who have been noted to acquire and retain information quickly. C) Students who have shown intelligent achievement through projects, research, or other documented means. D) Students who have a strong ability to process information and act on it sooner than their grade level normally would. E) Students who may be in this gifted category, but who may have fallen through the cracks due to a “masking” of these abilities. Such could include a disability, difficulty integrating with others, etc. All of these factors should be able to be documented.
